Who's buried in Grant's Tomb?
That question originated on the old-time radio show It Pays to Be Ignorant, which ran for nine years, from 1942 to 1951.
Easy questions were presented to a team of idiots, who mangled their answers until nobody quite knew what was happening.
Host Tom Howard (on the right in the photo) tried to moderate the three contestants, (left to right) Harry McNaughton, Lulu McConnell, and George Shelton.
This episode was first broadcast on July 14, 1944.
